Brief overview of rooting

Rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as root access) over various Android subsystems.

Rooting is typically performed using a PC, a USB Cable, and the Android device that you want to root.

Reasons for Rooting

Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices. Thus, rooting gives the ability (or permission) to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized applications (“apps”) that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user.

In short, having a Rooted phone let’s FlexiSPY access and watch over areas of the phone that it would otherwise be unable to.
